Little Bit of Everything

April 21st, 2010 at 10:04 am

Not too much going on around here this week. I sent off $2600 to credit card debt, paid off my surgery debt of $863, and paid the phone bill for the old house (have to keep the line for the security system).

The most excitement I had was chasing three ducklings and one chick who refused to go back into the chicken coop after their airing. It took three of us to catch them all. It's a far sight harder catching those ducks now they weigh two pounds then it was when they could fit in the palm of your hand and only had a bathtub to race around instead of a yard.

I've finally gotten a medication that seems to be killing this sinus infection I've had forever and am feeling a little better. At least I'm able to breathe through my nose again which does wonders for my ability to sleep through the night. I have been eating out too much though this last week when I was feeling miserable. I was getting the cheapy fast food meals which was better for my wallet, but not great for my health. I did eat up the pre-cooked frozen meals first though at least.

Because of the eating out I had $8.46 in change to add to my change jar. No, I still haven't gotten around to taking it into the bank.

$79.84 starting amount
+ 8.46 amount added
$87.94 ending amount

I think tomorrow I will feel good enough to start cooking again so my goal is no more meals out for the rest of the week. One of the nice things about being so sick was that I did manage to get off Pepsi. My soda habit was getting expensive again and even if I was drinking the Throwback instead of the stuff with high fructose corn syrup, pop is just never healthy. I can already see improvements in my sleep pattern and in my skin tone, both of which always suffer from the combination of caffeine and that much sugar. I think I will start adding the $15 a week I was spending on soda to my EF. And that's about it.

    Hi Robin,
    I'm glad to hear your sinus infection is better. What misery. I've had one for a very long time and can't clear it up. Would you mind telling me what you are taking that is working? Thanks so much!

    It's the generic for zithromax and my doctor has prescribed that I use three packs in a row with no pausing between them (it's supposed to continue working in your system for five days after the last dose, but my infections are always more serious than that and I'd just get sick again until he prescribed it this way.

    Yep, whenever we visit the Duvall friends who have the ducks, it takes us forever to get 'em in their coop. Geese all band together so herding is a matter of strategy, and their chickens tend to stay close to their pens (they clip their wings to keep them from flying away)... so ducks are the in-between. Their collie helps herding them a bit.

    Thanks, Robin---I'll ask my Dr. about doing this. A regular Z-pack (five days) has never done the trick for me either. I appreciate your giving me this tip.

    Also, I just read your blog written today about paying down your Mom to $100,00. That is wonderful!!!
